Romeo, directed by Vinayak Vaithianathan, is headlined by Vijay Antony and Mrinalini Ravi
Vijay Antony's upcoming romantic drama titled Romeo is gearing up for a summer release. The makers of the film took to their social media handles to share a new poster that features the Pichaikaran actor alongside actress Mrinalini Ravi of Super Deluxe fame. The actor captioned the poster with an intriguing line that read, “Milk and Whiskey. #BLOCKBUSTER this summer. #ROMEO”.
The new poster showcases Vijay Antony and Mrinalini Ravi as a newly-wed couple, who are seen in their bedroom. Mrinalini is seen pouring a glass of whisky, while Vijay Antony, holding a tumbler of milk, seems perplexed watching her. The new poster hints at a fun entertainer and something that Vijay Antony has not done before. The movie promises to be ‘more than just a marriage story’ and has left the audience curious about what the film is all about.
Touted to be a pan-Indian project, the upcoming film, directed by Vinayak Vaithianathan, features VTV Ganesh, Thalaivasal Vijay and Ilavarasu among others playing notable characters in the film. Love Guru is the title the makers have come up with for its Tollywood version. The title for the Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi versions is yet to be announced.
The upcoming romantic drama also marks the first production venture of the Raththam star, under his home banner Vijay Antony Film Corporation. Not only financing, but Vijay is also in charge of editing the movie. He has been the editor for a few of his previous outings like Annadurai, Thimiru Pudichavan, Kodiyil Oruvan and Pichaikkaran 2, which also marked his directorial debut.
The cinematography for the film is handled by Farook J Basha and music composition by Barath Dhanasekar. Kamala Nathan is in charge of art direction, while Murali G will be choreographing action scenes for the movie.
The Tamil actor, who has numerous films in his kitty, will be also starring in Hitler, Khakhee and Valli Mayil among others.
